In this fascinating interview Federico Faggin, designer of the first commercial microprocessor and pioneer in the movement to base mathematical theory on consciousness, urges science to embrace consciousness to explain the weirdness of quantum physics, and use it as the instrument of scientific investigation. “There need no longer be a duality between mind and matter,” he says. “With consciousness you can reach reality from the inside.” He makes a startling suggestion - that matter is the ink with which consciousness writes its own self-knowing.
In a conversation from SAND Italy, Mauro Bergonzi and Shantena Sabbadini discuss how the scientific…
Donald Hoffman reminds us that we can predict people's choices up to seven seconds before they are conscious of making that choice.
In this exclusive interview with Dr. Alan Wallace we discuss consciousness, mathematics, practicing deep sleep states and meditation as preparation for dying consciously.
Stuart Hameroff, co-founder of the Toward a Science of Consciousness conference, follows a brief overview…
This video is about Bell's Theorem, one of the most fascinating results in 20th century physics.
Imagine for a moment being in a church where mathematics groups meet regularly to solve geometry problems…
Physicist Neils Bohr once said, “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it.”…
Scientists have discovered a distinct turbulent fluid pattern, surprisingly close to Kolmogorov’s equation, hidden in many of Van Gogh’s paintings.
According to Ervin Laszlo, the coherence of the atom and the galaxies is the same coherence that keeps living cells together, cooperating to form life.
David Bohm was one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, and a fearless challenger of scientific orthodoxy.
It was on the edge of Berlin on July 14, 1930, that science and spirituality came together in one of the most intellectually stimulating conversations in history
Over the past century, the total number of physicists has grown exponentially, as has the number of…
In physics, time exists but it has no preferred direction.
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
The existence of an ether – an all-pervading medium composed of a subtler kind of matter – has been taught by mystic philosophers throughout the ages.
Is math an invention of the human brain? Or does math exist in some abstract world, with humans merely discovering its truths? The debate has been raging since the time of the ancient Greeks.
Since childhood I have been fascinated by holograms. The reason was the science fiction movie Star Wars and in 1984 I watched it for the first time.
Astronomer Natalie Batalha embodies a planetary sense of what “love” is and means.
Q: How do quantum phenomena take part in photosynthesis and why is it important?
The most famous case study in science, prior to Freud, was published in 1728 in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society by the English surgeon William Cheselden, who attended Newton in his final illness.
There are many things that affect our mental health, from work-related stress to past traumas to whether or not we meditate each day.
Time is a contentious topic in physics. Some physicists, such as Julian Barbour, argue that it doesn’t even exist. Others, such as Carlo Rovelli, hold that it arises as a secondary effect of deeper quantum processes.
On dark summer nights, away from city lights, I love to stargaze and imagine that I am dancing with the stars.
Quantum mechanics is known for its strangeness, from cats being dead and alive at the same time, to…
Two realities can exist at the same time, at least in the quantum world, suggests a new study.
